Introduction to Voice Dialogue 2018-1

The Insight Center 1404 Greenfield Ave., Los Angeles

Voice Dialogue gives us a map and an experiential method of learning about these selves, embrace them and integrate them – giving us a sense of wholeness and well being.  It is a unique and powerful blend of attachment theory, Depth therapy and Family Systems work.

Voice Dialogue emphasizes three aspects of consciousness. The person who is the Client is asked to embody and give voice to any and all aspects of the mind/body/soul that desires expression. The facilitator mirrors this expression and holds a presence with warm curiosity. The group serves as the Container holding a sacred space as they witness the moment-to-moment unfolding of this unique experience of self.

The Parenting Process 2018-1

The Insight Center 1404 Greenfield Ave., Los Angeles

In spite of the best intentions, adults tend to repeat the very injuries with their partners that they themselves experienced as children. When intense conflicts arise over seemingly insignificant things, they are really tender spots from childhood that resurface in the relationship. These baffling conversations may happen over and over because their underlying themes are elusive. This workshop is reparative, healing current emotional wounds within and between family members. It attends to intrapsychic injuries from childhood promoting adult maturation and more harmonious relationships.

The Mask of Self-Deception

The Insight Center 1404 Greenfield Ave., Los Angeles

Imagination is central to the art of psychotherapy and is hard-wired into our very neurons. Imagination lies at the heart of empathy and is a major force in change. Imagination underlies the positive experiences of vision, expectation, hope, and fantasy in therapists and patients alike. But imagination gone amok also lies at the heart of catastrophic vision, chronic anxiety, projection, delusion, and self-deception. This course uses interpersonal neurobiology as a framework to understand how imagination develops and evolves throughout life from early parent-child interactions and pretend play.
